Wolverines for Life is a collaboration between the University of Michigan community, Gift of Life, Be the Match, Red Cross, and the Michigan Eye Bank -- all groups that are dedicated to saving lives through donation.
Medical student involvement in Wolverines for Life plays an important role in the collaborative with our unique ability to connect with the greater campus community. Moreover, it is an opportunity for our students to become involved with future health professionals.
In joining this effort, we have the potential to raise awareness of the need for donors and to make an impact on the lives of the many patients requiring blood transfusions and organ and tissue donations each year. Overall, we seek to empower students to make a difference in a growing international crisis, where recipient need far exceeds the rate of organ, marrow, tissue, eye and blood donation.
